"Toni, your group are doing wonderfully well and I just wondered if you have noticed the discussion thread from Jigsaw. If anyone from your group can get to their store in Leeds you can hand in the squares (until about Christmas time) and they will…"
"We've just posted another 75 squares, and there will be another couple of parcels next week. Our group has so far made about 475 squares in just over a month. I'm so impressed and inspired :)
"212 squares being posted today :)
(I think I've done this right, but if I haven't please feel free to tell me haha. Also does it matter that I…"
"I'm possibly being very thick, but I've not been able to get onto a pc for quite some time, and my phone displays forums in a very strange manner which means I'm not getting the information as clearly I would like! I have no idea how…"
"Hey, I don't know if this is where I'm supposed to tell people about our squares, but I started knitting squares just 3 weeks ago, and told a few of the ladies from my local church. In 3 weeks we have made 155 squares, after we set a…"
"Wow so many?
My weekend was nice too,it was my mothers birthday:-)
I finished a square today but I guess it turned out too big:-(
Well tomorow evening my Mum is coming round to knit so I will try the magic way:-)
"Yeh I've got my friend (who doesn't normally knit) doing it haha! :p
I have loads of brothers and sisters, 10 in total! But I only lived with one haha. I get on with most of them luckily!
I had a lovely weekend…"
"That sounds easy enough for me to try:-)
Do you have any brothers or sisters?
I only have a younger brother and my boyfriend has an older sister:-)
But I don`t get on too well with my brother:-(
Well thanks for telling me about the perfect…"
"The coffee morning went brilliantly! We all sat around knitting and drinking tea, it was brilliant. We've got 25 squares now! :D Also, if you struggle to get the right size, one of the lovely ladies at church taught me how to make them the…"
"Oh that sounds nice about the coffee morning at church:-)
Are you doing multi colored squares ore uni?
I recently bought some cheap wool which is pink and sort of a rainbow pink and lilac,very pretty!
I don`t find it so easy to get the right size…"
"Haha yes being an art student does get a similar stereotype, people often think we're lazy which isn't at all true!
I knit all sorts, scarves, clothes, phone socks, and at the moment, mainly squares for KAS. I've just been to a coffee…"
Yes your right,Kindergarden is like a nursery in England.
Working with children is a lovely thing but as you say not easy!
Problem is many people think it`s just playing all day and drinking coffee:-(
But of course there is more to…"
"Hi again Rachel, sorry for the late reply, I've been away visiting my boyfriend for the week and I've only just got home!
I've lived with my Nan and Grandad pretty much all my life, and they're pretty wonderful. I've got 2…"
Toni, your group are doing wonderfully well and I just wondered if you have noticed the discussion thread from Jigsaw. If anyone from your group can get to their store in Leeds you can hand in the squares (until about Christmas time) and they will be sending by carrier, If you can't get to one of their shops packets can be sent to UK members (listed under UK group) who are able to collect them up and deliver for us, the inland postage being considerably less than international. Just a thought.
Hi Toni, Welcome to the KAS forum and I hope you enjoy being part of this friendly & lively community. Do you knit or crochet or both? Around the world caring people are all taking direct action and team-working with the Ladies of the Soweto Comfort Club - it is making a difference to many parentless children. When you've had a chance to look around the site you would be very welcome to join the UK group for more local news and chat.
